Creative Club FAQ’s
The Art of Kindness – Frequently Asked Questions…
What do you mean by mixed media prompts?
There are lots of lovely invitations to get creative. They are friendly and designed to get you freed up and flowing. There’s a whole menu of different creative approaches to help you deepen your understanding, expand your kindness repertoire and enjoy the process.
Who is in the Creative Club?
It’s a small group so it’s cosy and friendly. There is an atmosphere of curiosity and respect. We have some really interesting discoveries and discussions. You are welcome if you’re a newbie or a returning CC member.
Do I have to do all of it? I’m very busy
No, it’s really important you don’t add this to your stressy to do list. Do all or some, it’s really up to you. There’s a month to play in.
What happens on the Zoom calls?
We have a friendly hello and introduction at the beginning, 6pm on Monday 24, this is a chance to ask any questions and meet each other. At the end of the month we meet again, this is a chance to share your work, your insights, your process. We have a little meditation and art exercise together on this call. This will be 6pm on the 21st February.
Do I need to be an experienced artist?
Not at all! This is intended to be more about exploration and experiment than creating a work of art. There is an intention of self knowledge through creativity so it’s more a sense of willingness and curiosity required.
What materials do I need?
Something to write/paint on, I like using journals. Some basic pens etc and watercolour paints and brushes.
What’s the meditation about?
It’s a relaxing visualisation, to encourage and develop the delicious warm and soft feeling of kindness. It leads you gently into an art exercise.
What’s with the WhatsApp group?
It’s a sort of clubhouse for you to drop in and show what you’re working on, ask any questions and share your thoughts and discoveries.
What kind of expertise and support should I expect from Fran?
I’m a qualified experienced arts therapist and artist. I’ve designed this course to encourage creative confidence and self awareness, allowing the inherent wisdom that is in your creative soul to speak. I’m on hand in the WhatsApp group to encourage you and to answer any questions.
I’m not very techie, is that a problem?
No, it shouldn’t be. All the materials are made available to you at the beginning so you have immediate access, you can print them out if you prefer.
The zoom link is emailed to you just before the meeting to avoid muddle.
We can help you if you get stuck.
Is there visual inspiration?
Yes! I pride myself in personally making lots of visual goodies on the theme. Expect exciting rich images exploring the theme of kindness. I’ve also curated a Pinterest board on the theme of kindness.
Well who doesn’t need a bit more of it in their life?! By adopting a creative and curious approach to it, the intention is to discover more and make a lasting difference. Just a tiny drop of kindness can be immense. I so hope you give this gift to yourself and to others.
